CSV Examples

List Fields

List fields provide one selectable option. The field Status, has values that will be imported: In Progress, In Design, and Backlog.

Multi-Select Fields

The different values in a column should be separated with a delimiter and should be kept distinct using quotation marks. The field Business Group has many values. The delimiter is a comma , and the quotations marks "" separate each value.

Field Mapping

After selecting a CSV file the next step is the Field Mapping screen. This is the second stage of the Import process.

Roadmunk Fields

Roadmunk fields are the preset fields with values that can be imported.

Item is the only field that is mandatory when mapping fields. Without items, nothing can be displayed in a roadmap.

Fields should be matched and aligned according to the CSV columns that are displayed directly below.

Roadmunk will automatically detect the type of field. To confirm or to change the type use the drop-down menu.

Dataset Fields

These are fields taken from the column headers of the CSV. They should match desired field type in the above Roadmunk fields.

Changing the header will select a different data column. This way, data can be imported in any order.

Date Format

This indicates the date formatting used in the imported CSV. Roadmunk will automatically detect the date format used. The correct format means the Start Date and End Date will display correctly. Date separators can be a dash, space, slash, or period.

Roadmunk recognises many date formats:

  • YYYY-M-D
  • M-D-YYYY
  • M-D-YY
  • D-M-YYYY
  • D-M-YY
  • YYYY-MMM-D
  • MMM-D-YYYY
  • MMM-D-YY
  • D-MMM-YYYY
  • D-MMM-YY

Select from the drop-down menu if the format detected is different from the one used.

Please note:

  1. All dates imported must use the same date formatting.
  2. Roadmunk only accepts dates after 2010 and before 2040.
